What is Lazure Painting?

This painting method originated in Europe over 100 years ago and is still quite a revolutionary painting concept mainly suitable for many interior architectural settings but also exteriors. In Asia and specifically in China, with its population of 1.3 billion, and Hong Kong population 7+ million, it is virtually unknown in professional design. With my move to Hong Kong 2008 to establish residence and work in Asia, I am making steps to introduce the art of lazure. 

The initial concept of lazure painting was first presented by European born Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) who envisioned lazure as one of many new cultural impulses for healing society from materialism.

here are just 7 of lazure's main principles in my working:


1.  can be applied to any building surface, be it concrete, plaster, plastic, metal or wood...any with suitably prepared surfaces
2. is painterly applied in multiple layers as transparent wash-glazes
with drying time between each layer
3. each applied colour tone has little or no opaqueness...each tone is made as pure as possible
4. these applied colours, being transparent, contribute a qualitative luminosity and radiance unlike any other method
5. the resulting effect is one that uniquely expresses a beautiful colour mood that supports the spatial usage.
6. virtually unlimited artistic possibilities can be achieved far surpassing wallpapering.
7. in jobs on demand, I utilize a 100% professional grade, all natural paint medium from European. Tthis should be of importance for all those who wish and even demand, healthy living for leisure, work or play....this mediums is free of and harsh, alergy producing chemicals.    

During my 27 years of working I have completed commissions in nearly all possible venues: private residential homes, cultural  institutions as well as in commercial settings and also in industrial spaces.

Lazure painting stands at the absolute cutting edge of contemporary colour design.
